Captain’s Noon Reports – Under Sea – 2023-07-10

NUS south of Cerralvo at the moment, the wind is currently from the SE 15-18kts with SE 3-4′ seas, sky is mostly clear, air temp 32C.

Last night we anchored at La Ventana and headed out at 0630 this morning to look for mobulas, but as soon as we picked up the anchor, we spotted a big pod of sperm whales no more than a mile from where we were anchored in Bahia La Ventana. From that point, until about half an hour ago we were following the spermies. Guests had a great time all morning and the whales were calm and relaxed for most of the morning.

More recently they started traveling south and we left them about 8nm south of Cerralvo with the wind and swell picking up making it tough to keep track of them. So now we are on our way to La Reinita for our check-out dive and searching along the way.

Tonight we’ll anchor back at La Ventana and try again tomorrow morning for mobulas.
